We have so many issues going on around us at any given time. Some of us are not happy at our jobs, while others are constantly seeking employment. We have families whose needs we struggle to meet and as soon as we get our heads above water something else comes along to make us feel as though we are sinking yet again. Crime is up, money is down. However I think you get what I’m saying, I don’t want to depress anyone just by reading the post.
However I think we should help and encourage one another. So when the enemy of depression knocks on your door, how do you answer? What steps do you take to ward off or get rid of depression?
For some of us if we have a gray day we say we are depressed for others it is way more involved. In the African American community a good deal of us try to handle it on our own. However if you are having thoughts of harming yourself or others please seek help, either through Spiritual Guidance or Professional. I have entered some links and numbers below in the event you are in this place. Remember God instructs us to seek counsel and there is no shame in following the Word of the Lord.
Don’t forget to pay close attention to your children and elderly family members. Depression can attack anyone in your home and they are not as strong in articulating their feelings.
14 For lack of guidance a nation falls,
but many advisers make victory sure.
